Default 5 minute Film about Aussie manufacturer

Hi All

I posted a few weeks back with photos of my actually "Made in Australia" Nick Hacko watch

Well, it turns out that there is a young documentary filmmaker here doing a series of short films on artisans.

He's just released a piece about 5 minutes long about the people behind my watch.

Check it out - it's pretty cool, even if only brief

A dedicated team that clearly love what they do, from designing through to final testing.

A nice clip - cheers Reg

Reg, that is just the best really !

Those guys are like watchmaking Jedi Masters, and I love how you
can almost feel their passion for what they do, and how they blend
traditional watchmaking with modern. Honestly is spectacular sir !

These guys are keeping tradition alive, and creating new traditions
at the same time it looks like. They seem like exceptional people.

Thanks so much for finding, and posting this !

Nice one Reg cheers I am sure that clip will make you appreciate your watch even more. It is always a treat to see the sheer skill of these craftsmen.
I can't get my head around the fine tolerances they speak about, I would be useless with my Snickers bar fingers.
Thanks for the share it is much appreciated. Gary...
